  • Commented on Writer, Interrupted
    That's so old school ... anyone can easily be monitored/observed via screens or by tracking their keyboard activity. That's technologist thinking, not management thinking. They want to see the busy little bees working, all the little replaceable cogs turning in...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    My core reading schedule is a slow re-read of the whole Discworld corpus, begun shortly after PTerry's untimely death and progressing at around 2 a month, with a break of a few months earlier this year (also giving me the...
  • Commented on A plaintive request
    Oops! Posted this in the other thread, when I actually meant to post it here (as hopefully cheerful news, specifically for Charlie): It looks like Scrivener for iOS is available in the App Store now....
  • Commented on Beer, San Francisco
    Not apropos of this particular blog post, but simply because it's the most opportune place for me to drop this, and Charlie has mentioned keeping an eye out for it: It looks like Scrivener for iOS is available in the...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    For anyone still reading this far: It appears that Leadsom is to quit the Tory leadership race, citing that "abuse is too great", following her odious comments about Teresa May; apparently another public figure who considers "I'm sorry that you...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    THERE EXACTLY is why "Out" got a majority. Juncker can FUCK RIGHT OFF ... So you're in a queue for the only operational checkout at the supermarket, you've just reached the till, set all of your shopping on the counter,...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Although I voted Remain, and I think there's a mix of protest voters, bad political reasons, stupidity, racism, and protest voting that got us here, we're probably best served by sucking it up and getting on with it. Yup. We...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    The idiocy and mendacity of the the Tory leadership contest marches on: Leadstrom has claimed that there is in fact billions of pounds that will be diverted to the NHS post-BRExit. No further comment necessary....
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Gove has stated that he is for "full-fat BRExit", complete withdrawal from common market, and stopping all free movement. (It almost sounds as if he is trying to scupper his own chances before they begin -- he can't possibly imagine...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Remember the comment up thread about "perception"? We're into the post-truth world now where facts don't matter!...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Forgot Northern Ireland, Polling evidence shows that only 37% of Catholics would like to see union with the South in their lifetime. 40% of N Ireland GDP is money from London and union with the South would mean no NHS...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    "Perspective. Fresh out, I take it?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gjT9ujNOm0...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    What this discussion is a perfect illustration of is that neither the UK nor the EU has a clear upper hand going in to any negotiations -- they can hurt each other politically and economically, but not without hurting themselves....
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Oh, and any analysis of Northern Ireland parliamentary process that doesn't use the words "Petition of Concern" is bollocks and can be safely ignored. There. Fixed that for you. Please refrain from clever-dick condescension if you're going to get it...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    In the original joke, it was a jew. (There was once a thriving Jewish community in Belfast, used to be the only synoagogue in Ireland if I remember right -- so the joke sort of made more sense.) It is...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Almost certainly apocryphal, but not impossible....
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Of course they're not the same damn thing, but how long have you got to start attempting to lay out the definitions for the following: Unionists; Loyalists; the subtle differences in the DUP and UUP; the samller splinter parties such...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    I remember, and I also live and always have lived at "ground zero", so to speak (no oceans of separation for me, it is far from an intellectual exercise or abstract issue in my case). But the question at the...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Northern Ireland will get violent. It's too easy an option. There is a generation of young angry unemployed (or soon to be unemployed) who have grown up after the Troubles, listening to the stories of the good fight that their...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    I must admit that when I googled "synarchist" from his first post, my loon-detector gave a bit of a wobble. Thank you for clarifying and confirming....
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    I call "faceless EU bureaucrat" fallacy again!...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Have done no research into how reliable a source this is, but was shared by an old friend who works in the finance industry in London. We may experience a brief moment of schadenfreude at the discomfort of the bankers,...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Final thought, then I think I'm out for the day: A friend sent me a movie suggestion today, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels -- I haven't watched it in quite some time, but contains brilliant work by Michael Cain and Steve Martin...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    With respect to Greg, he seems to still be occupying the mindset that this result somehow gives us leverage with the EU. This seems counter-intuitive and just plain wrong. We have just pissed any EU goodwill up against the wall,...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    See my comment @85. Moving quickly may be in the long term interests of UK....
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    If the UK tries this bait-and-switchy kind of move, will the EU have to accept the change of decision to remain, or can we be forcibly ejected at that point? And if it does work, I would imagine next round...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Clusterfuck doesn't even begin to describe it. That might just be the best one line analysis of the whole sodding mess that I've seen all day. (I am personally concerned where NI is going in a big way, we're like...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    My suspicion is that Galdruxian is trolling by invoking Godwin, without actually using the word "Nazi". Ho hum....
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Despite my absolute certainty that I am doing nothing but throwing snacks under the bridge... You do realize that no matter how many times you use the word fascist in one post you're still talking bollocks, and doing nothing but...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Another thought in terms of playing the waiting game: Financial institutions like stability and predictability; the longer the UK delays on instigating or ignoring the referendum result, the more uncertainty; the more uncertainty the more chance that the financial sector...
